The Pufreiit Titinibtr of -tlie Euglislt Kew
ofa brother 'diplomatist of Jlielate mefican
Ambassador to the Court of St. James. 'After
a resame of flie condition6f the tTnited States,
t h e w r i t e r th us port ray s Mr e! uch a n an's charac
ter, afid 'indicates his policy as President:
"Mt Buclianati has one quality, and -"'perhaps
only one, in common with Lotus Napoleon; he
keeps his own counsel. In bojh instances it has

It is easier to offer a begutive than a positive
affirmation asljo the policy-of! the future Presi

lie Will be no pjappet in the
hands of his sup'
porters; npr Will he, knowinglyj allow his friends
to sway his bitter judgment. Hd will not
blindly commit himself to a one-sided policy,
nor rashly throw defiance in the ace of all
parties and governments who j declare for th'e
interests of civilization and humanity.
It is only by acknowledge of his personal and
political character that an opinion can be formed
of the polity the President elect is likely to
pni"sue. I3y giving onr readers a description,
borrowed from those whu ha'ye
him, inferences may be drawn as to his probable
(conduct when the tune comes tor linn to exer
cise the high powers with which he has been
invested. Physically, he is a .large, "powerfully
built man ; indeed, neither phvsicaliy, morally,
nor politically, is there anything littlk about
hitiii He is above six feet high, large-limbed,
and of fair complexion, and, 'although past
sixty still shows Uiat j w j early , days,
" . ' '
j what the other sex, (who mast be allowed to
decide in such matters) call a handsome man.
He has the habit of holding his head inclined
to one side, and sometimes partially closing one
than all our Ministers when they 'opened both
theirs to the fullest extent: as they had to do
more than once, if all tales be true, during the
course of their 'transaction of business' with 3ir
Buchanan. He is hale and vigorous, of regular
and active habits, and 'unexceptionable moral
conduct) conscientiously religious, a Presbyte
rian, with more indulgence for those of other
creeds than is 5iome:imes found 'in persons of
that persuasion ; : kind-hearted, generous, and
charitable, as many instances reported by those
who knew him (Will prove; distinguished for
great prudence and sagacity in making his de
cisions, and for firmness 'in their execution
when taken. He has forethought and cool
self-possession, conservative in opinion and
policy, and proves the soundness of ' his judg
ment by being favorable to the Conservative
party in England. 3 lie has been heard to say
more than onee 'It i remarkable that the
Conservative leaders and party in Engfand have
always been more inclined to be friendly with
